Kelli Griggs battled her way through the 419 player field to win the Bicycle Casino's Legends of Poker Ladies Event, dubbed the Ladies Poker Party. Along with first place honors, Griggs also gets the last remaining seat at the table for the WPT's Ladies Night IV which will take place August 31st. This was Griggs' second cash in a major tournament. She recently cashed in this year's WSOP Ladies Event, finishing 59th in the record field of 1128 players. You can read more about Kelli here.
I saw that Teresa Chang finished 6th at the Bike''s Ladies Poker Party. I remember watching Chang finish 6th in the 2005 WSOP Ladies Event. With six players left at the final table, she was second in chips behind Jennifer Tilly. It looked like Chang had a shot at the chip lead when she got her pocket queens all-in against Tilly's pocket sevens. The board came A-8-5-6-4, giving Tilly the straight and Chang the rail. I almost wondered if Chang played the event at the Bike this week to see if she could get another shot at Tilly:)
I noticed that Marsha Waggoner and Lacey Jones also made the money at the Bike this week, finishing 18th and 22nd respectively. Congrats gals.
